There are a few steps that must be taken to successfully switch from Plaid’s Sandbox or Development environment to Plaid’s Production environment.
If you haven't gotten Production access yet, you must request access to the Plaid Production environment from your Plaid Dashboard.
Once you have been approved and granted Production access, follow these steps to migrate over:
- Change the environment in your Link initialization code: set
- Ensure your API requests are being sent to the right API host: switch from using Sandbox or Development API hosts (
development) to Production:
- Use the Production client
secretkey: ensure that you specify your Production
secretrather than your Sandbox or Development
secret. See Account > Keys within your Dashboard to retrieve this key.
You should now be submitting valid Production requests. Note that the Sandbox and Development environments are entirely distinct from the Production environment. Any
Items originally created in Sandbox and Development will need to be created again in Production.
